Proverbs 7

7:1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of
 thy eye.
7:3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thy
7:4 Say to wisdom, Thou [art] my sister; and call understanding
 [thy] kinswoman:
7:5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the
 stranger [which] flattereth with her words.
7:6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7:7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the
 youths, a young man void of understanding,
7:8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the
 way to her house.
7:9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark
7:10 And behold, there met him a woman [with] the attire of a
 harlot, and subtil of heart.
7:11 (She [is] loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her
7:12 Now [is she] without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait
 at every corner.)
7:13 So she caught him, and kissed him, [and] with an impudent
 face said to him,
7:14 [I have] peace-offerings with me; this day have I paid my
7:15 Therefore I came forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy
 face, and I have found thee.
7:16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with
 carved [works], with fine linen of Egypt.
7:17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
7:18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let
 us solace ourselves with loves.
7:19 For the good-man [is] not at home, he is gone a long
7:20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home
 at the day appointed.
7:21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the
 flattering of her lips she impelled him.
7:22 He goeth after her quickly, as an ox goeth to the
 slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
7:23 Till a dart striketh through his liver; as a bird hasteth
 to the snare, and knoweth not that it [is] for his life.
7:24 Now therefore hearken to me, O ye children, and attend to
 the words of my mouth.
7:25 Let not thy heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her
7:26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yes, many strong [men]
 have been slain by her.
7:27 Her house [is] the way to hell, going down to the chambers
 of death.
